Outstanding teaching faculty

You will enjoy a unique balance between academics offering theoretical knowledge and senior-level professionals (entrepreneurs, CEOs of successful companies, industry experts) offering practical advice and guidance.
Moreover, our international faculty and experts either have their own company or are active professionals in top-performing organisations. This allows you to receive a rare opportunity to learn from successful teachers and gain knowledge on how to achieve the best results in a particular field from people who are embedded in the business world.

LEARNING BY DOING

During your three years of study, you will work in various teams in order to develop project management skills and understand different perspectives. You’ll also build greater self confidence as you participate in workshops, group projects and joint presentations.
